Reviews for the Lenovo Tab3 8 TB3-850F
Source: PC Mag Archive.org version
The $110 Lenovo Tab3 8 is an affordable multimedia Android tablet for the whole family. It doesn't offer the sharpest display or the fastest performance, but it's a sturdy slab with solid battery life, good speakers, and the ability to download apps from the Google Play Store. If you don't mind the Fire HD 8's Amazon-centric approach, however, you can get better battery life, more RAM, and faster Wi-Fi for less money (and a refresh to the tablet is making it even cheaper next month). For even less there's the $50 Fire tablet, which has a smaller, lower-res display but offers otherwise similar performance. Or for just a little more, you can get a Fire HD 8 Kids Edition that includes a child-proof case and a two-year no-questions-asked warranty.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
